Social Anxiety Background
one of 7 in family second last to be born. mmm shy from about 6yrs of age. Friendly to a degree but if people i didnt know came into my orbit..very very difficult. Few trusted friends ..as it today for me they have to have a good heart make me laugh or value me as an individual.
For the last 2yrs i have been seeing a FANTASTIC therapist..up until he came into my alone world i would hate to think just where i would be. Things have been that bad ideation was a constant unwelcome company. i see him twice a week,many many to many tears of the lost years. Average intelligence i found being around people i didnt know in starting a new job so overwhelming . Sadly i have never reached my full potential. lucks a fortune i found a job in a big company where i was just a very small wheel, able to go sit in the mens room..or locker room if s.a was doing my head in. Made redundant fell into a complete breakdown..i had been there for twenty years..so the revolving door of doctors and treatments. It was not until i went to a doctor in 1996 i was told of my predicament. If that has any interest to anyone please come back to me please.
After many years being treated with all if not most meds. My treating doctor suggested Parnate a MAOI class of med. As i tell my treating doctors etc. I expressed a little movement with Parnate..so they added avidant or avident for the anxiety part..fog head today not sure if i have spelled above correctly. Apart from today and yesterday..i experienced the ability to converse with individuals i didnt know. Mind you i had sun glasses on..never the less i was thrilled. Today is an ugly day..i see this week doctors maybe some tweeking of meds..also i have ocd anx/dep comorbid stuff that comes with it all.
